being the guardian of religion justifying the presence and political will by resisting western as asian and that is it. what is your answer to the problems we have within the society? what is your social policy? what is your educational policy? we don't have answers. the only thing is polarization is reducing political discourse into something that is simplistic to. not only the arab world is falling into that trap but we in the west read this situation to these lengths and egypt is in danger. too many men are wearing head scarves now. the symbol is dynamic and you can laugh but i am sorry to tell you the media coverage is too often the case that we are reducing the reality of a country on symbols. how many women and how many men. what is your position on sharia, if you use the term is over. that is the reality of the simplistic discussion we have. but once again what i am saying to the muslim countries in the arab world you cannot blame the west to reduce the political discourse. this is what is happening in the muslim countries themselves. this is the problem. by going beyond us, pola

"the new york times" reporting that suspicious registration forms have now been found in ten florida counties. we reached out to the florida republican party but the party says it could not comment on stragic ally. meanwhile in colorado one worker was caught on tape trying to register only mitt romney supporters. take a look. >> i am polling people but would you vote for romney or obama. >> wait. i thought you were registering voter a minute ago. >> i am. >> who are you registered? all voters? >> i'm actually trying to register people for a particular party. >> uh-huh. >> because we're out here in support of romney actually. i am. >> and who's paying you for this? >> oh, the -- let me see. we're working for the county clerk's office. >> okay. you cannot come out here and register one

. insult our religion. burning the holy koran and making cartoons of our prophet mohammed. if we don't defend islam, then we are not muslim." suicide bombings and other attacks are now daily currencies in the war in afghanistan. and the methods of the insurgents are constantly changing, according to the prison boss, general muhammad khan. "the enemy don't use their own tactics. now they use women. sometimes children and teenagers. they even get dressed up in military uniforms. they don't fight face to face. they're coward." the taliban denies recruiting children as suicide bombers. the facts tell a very different story. authorities say just a few days ago a 10-year-old orphan boy managed to escape from insurgents who were going to make him wear a suicide vest so he could blow himself up in front of coalition troops. rujallah has a 4-year-old son who he says he loves and misses very much. when i asked him how he'd feel if his child was used as a suicide bomber, he tells me -- "if he wants to be a suicide bomber when he gets older, well, then, no one can stop him. if he follows islam a
the backboards plots of the terrorists who do not represent libya, i do not represent islam. islam is a religion of peace and love, just as president obama said from this rostrum to days ago. our future will be a future chartered by people like chris stevens, not by people like his killers. in this context, i would like to express my condolences to the libyan people and to misrata for the death of a man who is joined some long list of martyrs five days ago. mr. president, i would like to express my deep appreciation for the actions of the administration following that moment of depression -- of distress. my mission is to pursue the perpetrators and bring them to justice. we shall make our utmost to strengthen the necessary protection granted to diplomatic and consular missions, and to ensure the safety of their employees and facilities. this painful event in no way expresses the feelings of the libyan people as people of moderation, hospitality, and gratitude. the large demonstrations condemning this lascivious crime in the city of van ghazi -- benghazi and other libyan cities is the true refle
of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. we understand why people take offense to this video because millions of our citizens are among them. i know that there are some who ask, why don't we just banned such a video? the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free-speech. from the united states, countless publications provoke offense. like me, the majority of americans are christians and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. as president of our country, and commander in chief of our military, i accept that people are going to calm the awful things every day. [laughter] and i will always defend their right to do so. [applause] americans have fought and died around the globe to protect people who express all views, even views we profoundly disagree with. we do not do so because we support hateful speech, but because our founders understood that without such protections, the capacity of each individual to express their own views and their own fate ma

and it is it a different feel experience for the people. >> steve: sure. what about outreach to other religions. >> that is an important part of the vatican 2 and part who john 23rd was. the ecmenical dialogue with the protest apt religions and other christian religions were begun in earnest with the vatican 2 and also thorth dox christians and a different attitude toward relations with the jews especially since world twar two and holocaust and it was a dark period. >> that continues to this day. >> and now there is it a movement to make him a saint? >> correct. he was called the good pope. el bono papa. and he was a hollande figure, really. in his life time. since then his reputation as glown and the cause for his canonization and actul process has been ongoing many years. >> steve: check out the book, the good pope. thank you for joining us. >> thank you very much snampt 13 minutes before the top of the hour. terrifying inside account of a commander how they are training fighters to take down our troops. wait until you see this. larry sabtau, said >> fort hood texas. lieutenant corn nel recei

"washington journal" continues. host: we are back with our "america by the numbers" segment. the overall unemployment rate has dropped percentage -- 7.8%. if you look to those sectors, manufacturing is what we're focusing on -- is not doing as robustly as other sectors. manufacturing employment edged down 16,000 jobs on net. the jobs in computer and electronic parts and printing and related activities. we will listen to the candidates and come back oand talk about their proposals for the manufacturing sector. let's start with president obama.

. there's different people, there's different races. there's different religions, and they don't want to accept that. they don't want to change their mindset. so, in the end, they campaign about the media coverage being biased, but when they look at it, the media coverage is not reflecting -- i mean, it's small, because their views are small. i think the media adequately reflects what the larger part of society feels. host: when you hear that somebody is a fox news watcher, do you immediately assume or think of them as potentially racist? caller: i do. because fox news, that's all -- i wish they knew people. i wish they knew other views. you know, the way they bash president obama, i mean, if he were white, you know, it would be different. i think they would look at it differently. i just don't think that -- i just think they're narrow-minded. they probably don't think they're racist, you know, but it's just how they put things out there, how they portray different groups and different people. you know, for instance, the muslims, they're just bad people. i'm a muslim, you know? why wo
